    cutting spending will not reduce the deficit at all.
    it will merely reduce the rate at which it increases.

    The “buffett” rule will not affect anyone that makes money through investment. It is a tax on “earned income” and NOT capital gains. That’s why Buffett is not worried about it. ALL his income is from capital gains NOT earned income.

    You have been duped agian.

    A couple of billion from those keeping it trapped doing no one any good, not creating jobs or paying down the debt the republicans saddled us with certainly won’t hurt the USA. More than likely will help.

    The problem is that the republicans want to cut spending and tax income from the rich. That won’t reduce the deficit the republicans created.

    No, the buffet rule won’t solve the nation’s budget problems by itself, but asking the nation’s super rich to pay the same tax rate as their employees is a symbolic gesture that does reduce the deficit. It’s embarrassing that somehow asking billionaires to pay same percentage in taxes is class warfare.

    Ok, I’ve taken another look> Now here is the official summary from the Senate bill:

    “Official Summary

    The following summary was written by the Congressional Research Service, a nonpartisan arm of the Library of Congress, which serves Congress. GovTrack did not write and has no control over these summaries.
    2/1/2012—Introduced.
    Paying a Fair Share Act of 2012 – Amends the Internal Revenue Code to require an individual taxpayer whose adjusted gross income exceeds $1 million to pay a minimum tax rate of 30% of the excess of the taxpayer’s adjusted gross income over the taxpayer’s modified charitable contribution deduction for the taxable year (tentative fair share tax). Establishes the amount of such tax as the excess (if any) of the tentative fair share tax over the excess of: (1) the sum of the taxpayer’s regular tax liability, the alternative minimum tax (AMT) amount, and the payroll tax for the taxable year; over (2) certain tax credits. Provides for a phase-in of such tax. Requires an inflation adjustment to the $1 million income threshold for taxable years beginning after 2013. Expresses the sense of the Senate that Congress should enact tax reform that repeals unfair and unnecessary tax loopholes and expenditures, simplifies the tax system, and makes sure that the wealthiest taxpayers pay a fair share of taxes."

    And here are a couple of opinions other than mine.

    You are obviously a demented neurotic freak. Your fanatic statement means only that your sick brain is washed.

    And you could remember, if your silly brain can do it, that USA has been throwing an average of 500 billion dollars a year since 1945 into what Eisenhower called “the military-industrial complex”, of which Obama is just a puppet.
    500 billion x 67 years = 33.5 trillion at least.
